Howl of the Horde Discussion

Focus on cutting down your cards to 100 first. From there test and revise, see which card is your weakest link. What card are you not happy to see and what card are you happy to see. Work backwards in terms of efficiency. What is your main storm combo? Your alternative?

Start with 36 lands, add in your main lines of winning, add in your back up line, than start adding pieces. The community here can help you as well but you have to know what you want to do. As for recommendation on cuts, here is a list that I see that is the weakest links.

Pyromancer's Goggles, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Archaeomancer, Rise from the Tides, Mystic Speculation, Mystic Retrieval, Mizzium Mortars, Invoke the Firemind, Infernal Plunge, Ignite Memories, Howl of the Horde, Empty the Warrens, Devastation Tide, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, Will Kenrith, Jaya Ballard, Jace's Sanctum, Metallurgic Summonings, Wild Ricochet, Opt, Insidious Will, Firemind's Foresight, Cryptic Command, Counterflux, Comet Storm

The above list is one of either things, it's too redundant, doesn't help your plan to storm, doesn't add any value, or it's too high cost on storm turns. Cut the cards first before thinking of swaps, if you keep on adding cards you won't be able to refine and get too clustered in deciding. Hope that helps.

I was playing Gruul Dragons (Casual / Modern) and did the following:


Reign of Atarka

Legendary Enchantment - Dragon (This way, it can cost less via Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman, while also getting bigger via Crucible of Fire and calculating into Dragon Tempest, Scourge of Valkas, Utvara Hellkite, Atarka, World Render, and all the other cool Dragon spells)

Whenever you cast a Dragon spell, you may pay an additional . If you do, this enchantment becomes a 6/6 red Dragon creature with Flying and Haste until end of turn.

Whenever this enchantment becomes a creature and deals combat damage to an opponent, you may reveal a Dragon card from your hand and put it onto the battlefield.


Moving away from the story cards of our personal life, make a support card for your favorite tribe. Non-legendary is the only rule. We do a lot of Legendary creatures here. Let's get away from that for a moment.

With solid access to black mana and damage doublers already in play, you could look at Insult/Gonti's Machinations and similar 'damage doubling' synergies for combo kills rather than flat burn. Doublecast, Howl of the Horde Increasing Vengeance Pyromancer Ascension Reverberate Furnace of Rath Pyromancer's Swath Quest for Pure Flame The Flame of Keld are all interesting options.

It would work well alongside some light accelleration with Pentad Prism, Grinning Ignus, Simian Spirit Guide and mana rocks to reliably hit that 5+ mana you need.

That said, the biggest thing is making sure you have things to side in for those deflecting palms. There are a subset of decks that just don't care about it, and you need to be able to fight them. The second thing is that you need to pack something to deal with leyline, as you litreally can't fight through it except by landing your combo. White has enchantment removal- consider it for sideboard.

I highly reccomend Grim Lavamancer, as it adds a lot of range to RDW.

I'd consider something like Browbeat in place of ahn-crop. I'd also much rather see a Metallic Mimic or similar instead of Ghitu Journeymage.

Doublecast is a great spell, and when run alongside Howl of the Horde or similar, you can jam a lot of lightning bolts into a single turn. The big problem is that unless you are running a combo list and spending 6-8 mana, it will always deal less damage than Lava Spike. Reverberate has some added utility in copying your opponents spells, but its not exactly reliable. If you go this route, you want Insult.

Sideboard Skullcrack or Flames of the Blood Hand. Four of. You will need them. There are better guides to RDW out there that can lead you through sideboarding, but it basically boils down to the split between lifegain hate, graveyard hate and artifact hate, as well as ways to play around Leyline of Sanctity.

TypicalTimmy on Exciting Cards in M19

6 months ago

My #1 favorite set in the entire history of Magic was the Tarkir block, specifically Dragons of Tarkir. I know most people went for Khans of Tarkir because of the fetch lands, but I'm not a very competitive player. I like flavorful decks, big flashy cards, stupid combos, and awesome finishers.

  • Your typical Timmy / Johnny Modern player

So when I saw the plethora of Dragons in M19 my inner fanboy freaked!

I currently have like four or five Dragon decks. Gruul, Jund, Rakdos, Azorius (That one sucks but is fun to play), and I had an older Jund deck that I quit using because it was making problems with my group.

I gotta say, Sarkhan, Fireblood pairs especially nicely with Sarkhan Vol. Their +1 abilities line up rather nicely. Draw a card and give your bois +1/+1 and Haste or pop out a Dragon and give it +1/+1 and Haste. Very nice.

Sure, Fireblood is two turns slower to ult but you also now have 8 cards in your deck that do the same thing (If you so choose). Dragon decks centered around Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest will have far too much fun with these.

Which leads me into Sarkhan, Dragonsoul. I currently have a Mono-red Dragon deck that actually ramps via Dragonlord's Servant and Infernal Plunge. I'm definitely able to make room for at least two of these guys, which is going to be awesome.

I'm also considering tinkering around with Lathliss, Dragon Queen. Arcane Adaptation makes her a powerhouse of pain.

Another interesting pairing I can work with is Demanding Dragon and Glorybringer, alongside Thunderbreak Regent. That's an awful lot of control-like aspects in MRDs.

Stepping aside from Dragons now, I'm also super excited for Apex of Power as I routinely run decks that can very easily achieve those levels of mana, though I may just run a single copy in a deck as Genesis Wave is strictly better. For 10 mana, you get X=8 and they hit the battlefield. Though what's interesting is if you cast an Apex of Power, you can filter the top seven and Genesis Wave the next 8. I'm not 100% certain if this is a good idea or not, but it could be worth looking at.

I'd also like to say that I'm super excited for the new Gruulfriends deck I can build around Vivien Reid and Domri Rade. If you get both emblems, which should be rather easy to do in Gruul, everybody now gets the following:

  • +2/+2, Indestructible, Double Strike, Haste, Hexproof, Trample, and Vigilance. That's a TON of anthem!

Also, can I just say that Resplendent Angel alongside Nyx-Fleece Ram + Inventors' Fair + Venser's Journal + Fountain of Renewal + Radiant Fountain is dangerously potent when you consider Angelic Accord and Archangel of Thune are a thing.

Also worth noting: Amulet of Safekeeping + Mechanized Production is a serious power play.

Also a new Reverberate in the ways of Doublecast is pretty neat. Might have to make a copypasta deck running those and Howl of the Horde...

It's also nice to finally have a new Hydra addition that doesn't completely suck.

I also run a Mono-Black Demon Tribal centered around the following:

So, naturally Liliana's Contract is a nice addition. Worth noting: Grixis Arcane Contract will be fun.

TypicalTimmy on Can card:Reverberate target a spell ...

7 months ago

Yes! It absolutely can! And when you Reverberate your Storm Herd, you get to copy your X value too, per rules.

"If the spell Reverberate copies has an X whose value was determined as it was cast (like Earthquake does), the copy has the same value of X."

Reverberate is one of my favorite spells in the whole game. It's so fun pulling off janky garbage combos with it. You ever see a Reverberated See the Unwritten?? It's so stupidly awesome. Or a Reverberated Lightning Helix / Boros Charm / Path to Exile??

Seriously an underused card. Dumbest combo I pulled off was a Howl of the Horde after I attacked with a Savage Ventmaw. The next spell I cast is copied 2 additional times. So I dumped the 6 mana from Ventmaw into a See the Unwritten, allowing me three copies of that crap. Than I tapped two red and cast Reverberate on one of them, copying one of the three.

That gave me four Unwrittens, allowing me to filter through the top 32 cards of my library and pull out the top 8 strongest Dragons in my deck. Ahh, Gruul. You're so stupidly fun to play.

(Timmy player at heart)
